Creative Card Crew - Challenge 30

Woo hoo just you wait and see what the super challenge is over on the Creative Card Crew this week!
None other than our lovely Paula has set the theme of

All That Sparkles - glitter, gems etc!!!
Now can you tell me of any crafter that never uses any of these? No excuse now - come on and join in as we would love to see YOUR interpretation.

This week we are sponsored by The Crafty Pad, check out our BLOG to see what this week´s prize is and also for inspiration from my fellow DT´s.




For my card I inked up "Snowman from Stamps Happen" and now know I bit off more than I could chew ... it took hours for it to dry so perhaps my art glitter glue is well past it´s sell by date! First layer was stamped on acetate - glittered from behind and then another 3 layers were stamped onto card, coloured with Copics then cut out and paper pieced in place - final layer was the foreground which I added copious amounts of polar white flowersoft to give the effect of snow so hopefully I have achieved the challenge of All That Sparkles and with the addition of flat backed gems to the snowflakes on my backing paper I have ticked the next box too rofl.
Weeell maybe I may use this stamp again - next year - if I can forget the catastrophies of this card rofl.
Thanks for stopping by my wee crafty corner, your support and comments mean so much. -x-
